The folks over at Dijit have been busy as the year draws to an end, issuing updates for both their universal remote app and NextGuide tablet app that promises to help us escape traditional grids. The newest version of the Dijit remote (a free app that brings control features when paired with Griffin’s Beacon) is now integrated with NextGuide, allowing users to share profiles across the software, the welcome addition of a “record to DVR” button for DirecTV subscribers, a refreshed UI, accessibility enhancements and finally support for iThing screens of various shapes, sizes and resolutions. The NextGuide app itself also has a new feature, with “Clips” which pulls in additional short videos from Hulu that tie into whatever actor, show or anything else you may be watching, plus an easier setup process and autofill search box. The apps themselves are free, snag them at the source links below.

We’re not sure what’s going to happen in the season eight premiere, but we suspect someone is going to worried about whether or not they’re catching enough crabs on this trip.
